Canadian Bishops Season of Creation 2019 – The Web of Life

Endorsed by Pope Francis in 2015 and supported by the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, the annual month-long ecumenical celebration entitled the Season of Creation will begin on 1 September (World Day of Prayer for Creation) and continue until 4 October 2019 (feast day of Saint Francis of Assisi). The celebration calls on the global Christian community to promote prayer and action to protect our common home. The theme for this year’s season is “The Web of Life”. In a press releasepublished to promote the season, the Dicastery “invites pastors to prepare for the Season of Creation as part of their pastoral leadership, and invites communities to celebrate life and protect God’s creation.”

For more information and resources on the Season of Creation, please see its dedicated website

The Season of Creation is an annual celebration of prayer and action to protect creation. It is celebrated by Christians of all traditions and begins September 1, the Day of Prayer for Creation, and runs through October 4, the Feast of St. Francis, who is the patron saint of ecology in many traditions. 

We invite you to take part in this celebratory period by learning about and reflecting on the upcoming Special Assembly of the Synod of Bishops for the Pan-Amazon Region. The theme of the Synod is Amazonia: New Paths for the Church and for an Integral Ecology and it will be held from October 6 to 27, 2019 in Rome. During the Season of Creation, let us discern how we can respond to the cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor in the Amazon.
